from the practice of law, since you announced your departure earlier this month, critics have been coming out of the woodwork. coffey from and better markets. they say rob kuz sami under the enforcement division that you were not tough enough catching the bad guys. what do you say to that? >> that is not true. a number of folks who support our efforts and recognize what we accomplished significantly outnumber the critics. speaking to the critics we have charged over 150 individuals and entities and financial crisis cases. nearly 70 ceos, cfos, other high-ranking corporate officers. we barred a large number of individuals. the financial crisis cases we've been the moist vigorous enforcement authority out there and it is a very, real record of accomplishment. >> but your critics again say you tended to file cases that, for example, focused on nondisclosure rather than fraud. that you went after firms, not individuals. when you went after individuals, they were the small fry, not the big folks and that you settled for much less than you could have and left some of these companies, som
